11 Things NOT To Do While Going Commando

What is my favorite thing about both my roommates going out of town for the weekend? Being naked. Nothing feels better. Oh, I want a glass of water? No, I won’t put on pants for that. Don’t get me wrong, I like fashion as much as the next girl, but my days and nights would…

10 Underwear Styles A Dude Shouldn’t Be Caught Dead In (NSFW)

Manties: will they ever cease to be entertaining? Especially when they are made of beef jerky. And bedazzled with rhinestones. And rumored to mix perfectly with ball sweat to enhance natural male pheromones. No, they will not. You can buy your man a pair of these tasty, meat haute couture Brief Jerkies on Etsy for…

Bigger Girls Wear Sexier Panties

Watch out for the big girls! A survey of 2,500 adults revealed some surprising statistics about the kind of underwear we buy depending on our size. Size 8 women are more likely to wear granny panties (referred to as “sensible cotton pants” in the study), while size 14 ladies are more likely to go commando.

Girl Talk: On Bridal Underwear

There were a lot of things I knew I’d have to think about when we decided to get married. I don’t just mean the lofty “What is marriage for?” questions. I mean the practical questions about the ceremony and party. What I’d be wearing underneath my dress for the big day wasn’t, however, one of…

Smooth Groove & 5 Other Products To Conceal Your Camel Toe

Ladyparts are oh-so-problematic. They smell. They’re hairy. And when you wear super-tight clothing, they don’t automatically invert inside your body like an oyster to prevent camel toe. Can’t a girl give herself a yeast infection in peace? Luckily, the marketplace has generously stepped in to “help” us “solve” this beguiling conundrum. We just heard about the…

Do Not Want: All Fringed Up Panties

Whoa boy, these panties. Perhaps I just don’t live the kind of lifestyle that warrants fringed underwear. After all, underwear that accentuates the mons pubis isn’t for everybody. Or most people? On the upside, I suppose you don’t need to do much shaving and waxing when you wear these guys. [$32, Sugar Kitty Corsets]…

Swoon! Julia Restoin-Roitfeld Designed Lingerie For Kiki De Montparnasse

As if we weren’t already jealous enough of Julia Restoin-Roitfeld! The model/daughter of ex-French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld designed a line of lingerie for the luxe brand Kiki de Montparnasse. And she is modeling it herself, natch!  We’d be seeing green if we weren’t so taken by these vintage-inspired black and white snaps.
I will…

Evening Quickies: Kmart Sold Girls’ Panties That Said “I Love Rich Boys”

I can’t, Kmart in Australia. I just can’t. Why the heck were you selling girls’ underwear with the slogan “I Love Rich Boys” written on them? The panties that read “I Heart Boys In Uniform” and “Call Me” are probably inappropriate for young girls as well — although I’m not clear how “young” we…

If Your Little Girl Wears Crotchless Thongs, You Are A Bad Parent

If I ever have a daughter, I know what she’s getting for her seventh birthday: a crotchless thong, of course! No, but seriously, a Colorado woman was shopping with her children at Kids N Teen in Greeley Mall when she spotted the unthinkable: a tiny thong featuring a split down the crotch. Erin French snapped…

Swedish Lingerie Store Has Employees Display Bra Size

Nine-and-a-half-times out of 10 I completely agree with other feminists about what they identify as sexism. But sometimes I really do disagree and the lingerie shop in Sweden that asks employees to display their bra size on their name tags is one of those times. The chain store, Change, has asked their female sales clerk…

Cameltoe Gets Forever 21 Thong Removed From Facebook

Forever 21 is going all American Apparel on our asses. Literally! A quick click-through on their online lingerie section revealed some scandalous cameltoe action. When the blogger for WTForever21 posted one of the most explicit examples on her Facebook page, the content was removed shortly thereafter. No reason was cited, though the blogger guesses the…

Lingerie For Little Girls? Yep, A French Company Went There

Forget about candy-colored bra and panty sets from Target; there’s ickier underwear for little girls afoot. It’s lingerie, to be exact, although the French line Jours Aprés Lunes calls it “loungerie,” because it is for lounging around instead of, uh, looking sexy prior to f**king . Why, praytell, would girls ages four through 12 want…

Fart Panties Allow You To Pass Gas With Confidence

First of all, I need to know how Shreddies, the flatulence filtering underwear, work. Is there an air freshener inside the panties? Are they sound proof? I have so many questions. After I’ve demystified the logistics of Shreddies, I’d like to understand how that woman got into that pose otherwise known as the international body…

Confession: I Don’t Wash New Underwear Before I Wear It

The other day there was a little incident where I was informed at, oh, 4 p.m. that I’d been walking around all day wearing hot pink boy shorts underneath a see-through dress. Ruh roh. I hustled over to the nearest Victoria’s Secret to deal with this situation. There I found a bunch of cute cotto…

A Woman’s Lot In Life Is To Constantly Replenish Her Panties

Like every other woman alive, I have a wakeup routine that hasn’t changed for years. Silence my alarm. Put on my glasses. Refresh the “Mail” tab on my iPad. Slide slippers on my feet. Shuffle over to one of my dressers. Peer into my panty drawer. Toss aside the pink leopard print thong that scream…
